I don't think it re-compresses the JPEG, I'm not aware of any code that
would do that.  However it is possible that there is some incompatibility
between GPG and PGP in the handling of photo IDs.  Can you provide me
with a GPG-created key with a photo ID, and I will see what happens to
it with PGP.
